Hi,

I recently tried to use this feature however i quickly found out it had not been operational.

My smart recovery has no backup destination listed in the main dialog.

When i open the settings tab i have my one and only drive is listed under sources however destinations is completely empty.

How may i remedy this?

Thanks.

Hi

That is probably because as you mentioned you only have the one drive and it would, be a little useless to backup the drive to the same drive. I think you would need to add another drive to use as the destination drive first.

Hi Dark Mantis,

I have a possibility to use a USB Key, like ''Second Hard Disk''... ?

Yes that would probably be an option as long as the USB Drive was large enough.
